Efron eyes Broadway stintSeptember 14th, 2012 - 7:48 am ICT by IANS
Los Angeles, Sep 14 (IANS) Actor Zac Efron is a theatre enthusiast and has now set his sights on Broadway.
The Hollywood hearthrob started his acting career with amateur theatre productions and found fame in the “High School Musical”. He later landed a singing role in the 2007 big screen adaptation of “Hairspray”.
Efron has since starred in a string of hit romantic comedies and dramas, but admits he “can’t wait” to return to the stage, reports express.co.uk.
“Without a doubt, I’d love to do Broadway. I actually can’t wait to get back to musical theatre,” he told The Advocate.
“There’s a part of me that wishes I could go do it right now, but there’s also a part of me that knows I need to tackle other types of acting opportunities first. I want to be a well-rounded, versatile performer. Until I master other things, it would be hard for me to get back to musical theatre.
“But that will always be my home base and where I feel the most free, and it’s something I will definitely do again, even if it’s just for pleasure and personal fulfilment,” he added.
